Review: Caress Forever Adore Forever Body Wash

Hey there Gorgeous!
I hope you had an amazing weekend. I definitely did. My husband and I were able to travel back home to Tennessee to visit with my mom for the weekend. Sometimes spending some time with your mama is exactly what you need. :)
So if you know me, you know I am a sucker for some good advertising. If a product makes a really big claim, I HAVE to try it out and see if it is legit. So when Caress made the claim that they had released the World's first body wash with Fragrance Touch Technology I knew I was going to have to buy it and try it out. If you haven't seen the ads or read about the new body wash collection from Caress, let me tell you more about it.
 Here is the claim from Caress: The Caress Forever Collection is the world's first body wash with fragrance touch technology. The breakthrough technology of Fragrance Release Pearls releases bursts of perfume with every touch of your skin. The collection delivers long-lasting, unforgettable, fine fragrance for up to 12 hours. The collection only has two body washes in the collection: Love Forever and Adore Forever. Love Forever has rich florential sweetness blended with lush dark berries and the freshly picked Scarlett Red Rose. Adore Forever is an irresistibly romantic fragrance with touches of melting honey, vanilla, and the freshly picked Angel Face Rose. I decided to go with Adore Forever to try out first.




First of all, let's talk about the appareance of the Body Wash. I absolutely love it! It is very sexy.... If body washes can be sexy. haha. The bottle definitely catches my attention when I am looking at all of the rows and rows of body washes. It is a black 13.5 Fl Oz/ 400 ML bottle with purple roses and black flowers on the front. The actual body wash is a very pretty purple with a bit of glitter to it. The glitter however does not transfer to your skin. The fragrance is very lovely! It almost reminds me of a scent from Victoria's Secret that I can't quite figure out which one it is. The top notes are Raspberry and Cassis, the heart note is Angel Face Rose and Muguet, and the base note is Amber, Honey, and Vanilla. The fragrance does come off a bit strong, so that is definitely something to keep in mind if you are sensitive to strong scents. The body wash lathers really well. I only needed a little bit to cover my entire body. It felt very moisturizing on my skin and I honestly did not want to get out of the shower because it smelled so good and felt so good on my skin.


As for the claim of the scent of the body wash lasting for 12 hours....I have to say this claim is very accurate. I could smell the body wash all day on my skin. It wasn't an overwhelming smell. It definitely didn't smell like those girls that use the same scent for their body wash, lotion, and perfume....yeah, you know the kind. Throughout the day the smell seemed to fade to a very light scent and I would just kind of rub my skin to see if I could still smell the body wash and I could! I actually received several compliments of people asking me what perfume I was wearing. They were all amazed when I told them it was my body wash. Overall, I am very impressed with this body wash and will definitely be picking up the Love Forever scent as well.


Fun Facts;
Price: $3.49
Where: Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS...
For More Information: Caress



Are you a sucker for some good
advertising as well?

Review: Joico K-Pak Reconstruct Split End Mender

Hello gorgeous! 
So I have been doing everything lately to really take care of my hair. I have very long, fairly thick hair and the last thing I want is for my hair to look like I don't take care of it. I have cut down the amount of days I wash my hair and not applying as much heat to it. My hair has really started to reap the benefits from doing this, but it still needs some TLC every now and then. So I came across Joico's K-Pak Reconstruct Split End Mender on sale at Ulta a few weeks ago and I thought it would be the perfect product to try out on my hair. I do get the occasional split end every now and then..I mean who doesn't right?! And I know that no product will ever fix split ends, once you have a split end you will need to get your hair trimmed. But there are products that can help keep the split ends to minimum and I was hoping this would be my answer. 

Keep reading to see if it is...  ;)



How Joico describes the Split End Mender:
Forget the homespun trick of trying to banish those niggling split ends with a pair of manicure scissors. Our solution makes far more sense… and requires neither a nail-related tool nor an upside-down hair maneuver: Simply try a dab of our brilliant, featherweight serum that actually seals, and protects hair from the splits.

Perfect choice for: Anyone who’s experiencing fraying ends, caused by overzealous brushing and combing, excessive styling, or HAD (“Haircut Avoidance Disorder”).
Here’s how: Apply to towel-dried hair, concentrating the product on tips and ends.
The inside secret: An ultra-durable bond actually seals the cuticle of the hair, delivering extraordinary shine as well as protection against future splits.
source: Joico





The Split End Mender comes in a 3.4 Fl oz/ 100ML plastic bottle that has a pump. The actual product is a cloudy, clear gel that smells so good. It isn't an overwhelming smell, but does kind of lightly linger in your hair all day. I didn't mind at all though because I really enjoy the smell. A little definitely goes a long way with this product. I have very long, fairly thick hair and I only need 2-3 pumps on my hair. If I applied too much of the product my hair became crunchy. I noticed that when I was applying the gel every day on towel-dried hair I didn't really notice a difference in my hair. So I cut back to only using the product two times per week and I have noticed a big difference in my hair since doing that. My hair seems less frizzy and my ends look a lot healthier. They don't seem as dry as they were before. I will still get my hair trimmed, but I believe this product will help me go a little bit longer between hair cuts. I recommend this product to anyone that wants to help their ends look and feel healthier and to only use this product once or twice a week for best results.

Review: Elf's Makeup Mist & Set

Hello Gorgeous :)
It is HUMP day..what?! did I actually just say that?!! We are mid-way through the week and one day closer to the weekend. Wednesday is sounding even better by the minute. So I am in love with Pinterest..okay, maybe love isn't even the word to describe my obsession with Pinterest. I can't help it that website just makes life so much easier. I mean you have everything you have been searching for and lusting over right there on one website at your fingertips. Man, I wish I would have invented that website! But I came across a list of dupes for different MAC products. And if you know me, you know I love a good dupe. So I marched my sassy self right over to Target and purchased a few of the dupes on that list. The first product I got was the Makeup Mist & Set from E.L.F. (eyes, lips, face) It is supposed to be a dupe for MAC's Fix +. I have never tried FIX + so I won't be able to tell you if Elf's Mist is actually a dupe, but I will let you know if it is worth your money.



Wish you could have a product for your makeup like Hairspray is for your hair? Well…keep your makeup staying in place all day with a radiance boosting invisible hold with our new Makeup Mist & Set. The invigorating mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E. The lightweight, comfortable and alcohol free formula improves makeup wearability and prevents color from running or fading.
source: E.L.F. 




The makeup mist and spray comes in a clear black plastic spray bottle. It is 2.02 fl oz/60 ml in size. The mist is also clear, but does have an odd smell to it. I can't quite figure out what exactly it smells like, but the scent does go away after a minutes after application. I love the fact that it has Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber, and Vitamins A, C, & E in it. The mist does feel very refreshing on your face. When I first sprayed the mist on my face it made my face very wet and I was a little nervous about it ruining my makeup and making me look like a wet puppy, but it dried within a few seconds. I wish that I could say that the mist & set made my makeup last way more than my makeup usually does, but I would be telling a lie if I said that. It just didn't wow me as far as keeping my makeup exactly the way it was when I applied it.  However, I did notice that I didn't get as oily as quick as I usually do..especially in my T-zone areas. I do have very oily skin, so maybe that's why it wasn't like hairspray for my makeup. Maybe someone with dry skin or even dry to combination skin would have better luck with this product. I think for the price (it is only $3) of this product it is still something nice to have in your makeup bag. It is just so refreshing and would be very nice on a very hot day to spray on your face.

Did you have better luck than I did?

Essie "Peach Side Babe"

Hello there gorgeous! 
I hope your Tuesday is treating you right. 
So today's post is all about Essie's Peach Side Babe. I knew I was going to have to have this polish as soon as I saw the promotional ad from Essie for this polish earlier this year. I have a feeling this polish will be making a lot of appearances on my nails this Summer....




Facts:
Name:  Peach Side Babe by Essie
Collection: Summer 2015
Released: May 2015
Other Colors in Collection: Private Weekend, Chillato, Sunset Sneaks, Salt Water Happy, Pret-a-Surfer, and Peach Side Babe 
Extra Tidbit: Contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde
For more information: www.essie.com




Review

Color:
Peach Side Babe is absolutely gorgeous! It is beautiful peachy pink creme polish. It could pass as being coral. I think the color will compliment pretty much every skin tone.



Application & Formula:
It took me 3 coats to be completely opaque. I was a little disappointed in that. What can I say..I love my one-coat wonders. Oh well..the amount of time and coats you have to put into this polish is definitely worth it. It does dry fairly quickly and to such a gorgeous color. The brush was very easy to work with, as always from an Essie polish. It did last me about 5 days before it started chipping which is very good for me because I am very rough with my nails and most nail polish doesn't last 2 days without starting to chip.





What is your favorite polish from 
Essie's Summer 2015 Collection?

Sunkissed Summer Tag

Well hello there! :)
For today's post I figured I would do a questionnaire tag. I haven't done a tag post in a while and thought it would be the perfect time to do one now. I like doing these because I feel like it is a great way to get to know me a little better and I love when others do the same tag, so I can get to know them a little better.  I saw Elle Fowler do this tag on her YouTube channel and thought this would be the perfect tag. It is called "Sunkissed Summer Tag" and even though it already feels like Summer where I am at..technically, Summer doesn't officialy start until June 21st, so I thought this would be the perfect way to welcome Summertime. 

Here are The Questions:

1. What is your go-to product for a sunkissed summer glow?

I absolutely love Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tanner. The name desribes it perfectly "flawless." It gives such an amazing glow to your skin and it smells so good. It does have a tiny bit of that self tanner smell, but it smells very tropical.

2. What book would you recommend for a summer read?


I love pretty much every book from Nicholas Sparks. His books are definitely my favorite!

3. What's your signature summer scent this year?


Hmm..I haven't found a perfume that will be my signature scent for THIS year. But during the summer I love anything that is citrusy or has a tropical smell to it. 

4. The sun is shining and it's time to get outside! What's your favorite thing to do?


Summer is a great time to travel! I love sightseeing and doing things that I normally wouldn't do. I love to step out of my comfort zone in the Summer. My husband and I are doing a lot of travling this Summer for his job, so make sure you follow me on Instagram so you can see all of our adventures. 

5. You're on the boardwalk and starving! What's your go-to summer beach food?


Definitely seafood! If it comes from the Ocean..I will eat it! My favorite places to eat near the beach are Bubba Gump's, Joe's Crab Shack, any local seafood place they have! Okay, this is making me want to go to the beach and eat some good seafood!! 

6. What's your dream summery date?


Being outside! Since I don't live near the beach I will have to settle for the Lake. My dream summer date would be spending the day at the lake and having a picnic. Then maybe that night go see an outdoor movie. 

7. After a day in the summer heat, what do you do to cool off?


Drinking a refreshing drink and just chilling out. 

8. How do you wear your hair in the summer? 


I have very long hair, so putting it in a braid is my go-to hairstyle. 

9. What's your must-have nail polish for summer 2015?


I am dying to get my hands on Essie's Neon Collection

10. What shows do you recommend for summer?

I love catching up on shows that I may have missed. Netflix is definitely my friend in the Summer. Recently, I have been watching The Vampire Diaries from the very start. 

11. Do you wear liquid foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer in the summer?

It depends..If I am going to be outside all day and it's very hot then I will just go with a BB Cream or a Tinted Moisturizer. But if I am actually going somewhere then I will wear my liquid foundation. 

12. Sunglasses or Hats?

Sunglasses

13. What is your summer jam this year?

Well right now my favorite songs are:
 "One Hell Of An Amen" by Brantley Gilbert,
"Break Up With Him" by Old Dominion
and "Kick The Dust Up" by Luke Bryan

I am a big country fan!

14. Do you have a summer bucket list? 

I don't have anything particular that I want to do besides go to the beach this Summer. But I have made myself a promise that I will do something I normally wouldn't do. I want to look back at my life at all of the memories and fun things I have done...I don't want to be 60 and say "I wish I would have done this..."

15. Bikini, tankini, or one piece? Show us your fave bathing suit this year!

Bikini

16. What's your favorite sweat proof product?

waterproof mascara is a must for me in the Summer!

17. If you could create your own ice cream flavor, what would it be?

hmm maybe something with red velvet cake and cheesecake
Those are my favorite kinds of cake and ice cream, so why not combine them :)

Review: Covergirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation

Is it Monday already?! Where in the world did the weekend go to?!
It always seems like the weekends go by so fast, but the weekdays drag on what seems like forever.
Am I the only one that feels this way? I am going to go out on a limb and say I am probably not. ;)
So I was watching one of my favorite Youtubers, Alisha Marie, the other day and she was talking about how Covergirl's 3 in 1 foundation lasted all day on her oily skin. I don't even think I finished watching the video before I was already at Walgreens purchasing the foundation. I have very oily skin too and anytime someone makes that good of a claim
 I have to try it out and see for myself if it really is that great.



 " All-in-one foundation with a long-lasting formula that fuses primer, concealer, and foundation in one easy step! The 3-in-1 formula provides a flawless look that lasts all day long." 
-Covergirl




Ingredients:
Active: Ensulizole 3.0%. Inactive: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Propylene Glycol, Talc, Dimethicone, Aluminum Starch, Octenylsuccinate, Sodium Chloride, PEG/PPG-18, Pvp, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Ethylene, Copolymer, Trihydroxystearin, Arachidyl Behenate, Methicone, Silica, Synthetic Wax, Sodium Benzoate, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Ethylene Brassylate, Behenic Acid, Polyethylene, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide.


My Review:

I like the appearance of the foundation. I absolutely love that it has a pump applicator. It really does make it so much easier to use and you always make sure you get the exact amount out that you actually need. I hate wasting products, especially foundations. It comes in a glass bottle which makes it easy to see exactly how much product you have left. The foundation feels extremely light on your face. It does not look cakey at all. It goes on very smooth and spreads beautifully across the skin. It does have a bit of a scent to it. It is not overwhelming and goes away after a few minutes after application. I tired out the foundation with my fingers, a Beauty Blender, and a brush...each time I received a flawless finish. The foundation does have excellent coverage. I do have very oily skin and this foundation did a wonderful job at helping me keep the oil under control. I usually put my makeup on around 8:30AM and around 6:30PM I started to notice a bit of a shine to my face. It wasn't to the point where my makeup was sliding down my face or anything. I was able to dab my oily spots with an oil-free blotting sheet and carry on with my day. I was impressed though...10 hours without being oily is really good for me and my skin!! The foundation does have SPF 20 in it. I think this foundation would be perfect for those with oily to combination skin who like medium to full coverage. It does come in 14 different shades. I do have sensitive skin and this foundation has not broke me out at all since I started wearing it.




UPDATE: This foundation did start breaking me out after wearing it for about a month. I started noticing small bumps on my forehead at first and then my face started going crazy. I stopped wearing the foundation and my face started clearing up again. The foundation was the only thing that I added in my routine, so I know it was the culprit to my breakouts. Such a bummer!!





Have you ever tried this foundation before?
What are your thoughts on it?

"What's In My Pool Bag"

Hey there lovebugs!
 I hope wherever you are that you are able to enjoy the beautiful, warm sunshine. 
My husband and I are traveling again and we are in Kansas this week. It has been extremely hot the past couple of days..I think it reached over 100 degrees yesterday. WOW! Big difference from where we were a few weeks ago when we were in Wyoming and it was snowing. Well, with all of this heat the only thing I want to do is to stay cool in the pool. I love watching videos or reading posts about "what's in my purse", so I figured I would do the Summer version  and show you guys what all I take to the pool with me. I really don't like to bring a lot with me to the pool. After being in the sun all day, you get pretty wore out and the last thing you want to do when you are leaving is carry a super heavy bag. So I try to keep it to all of my "must-have" items. 

My Pool/Beach Bag
Well this obviously is a must! You have to be able to put your stuff somewhere. haha ;)
My sister bought me this tote bag for Christmas a few years ago. It is from Ballard Designs. It has been everywhere...the lake, the beach, the pool, weekend getaways to the Mountains. It is very sturdy and so cute. The totes are very affordable..Check them out if you are looking for a new tote bag. 

Drinks
I always carry a drink with me. You want to stay hydrated when you are outside in that heat. I will usually bring a bottle with a drink inside of it and a bottle of water. I love my Blender Bottle and usually have it with me 99% of the time. 

Sunblock
This is another must! I don't want skin cancer at all, so I always put sunblock on. I have a very sensitive face, so I usually wear a different sunblock for my face than my body. If you are like me and have sensitive skin on your face..look for a sunblock that is hypoallergenic and doesn't clog your pores. Neutrogena and Coppertone are good brands that I usually go for on my face. 

Sunglasses
Okay, this is another item you can't go to the pool without. My eyes kill me if I go out in the sun without sunglasses on. I usually have a pair in my pool bag, my car, my purse, my dresser...I make sure I have a pair of sunglasses no matter where I am. I do not want to be out without them! I usually bring a hat with me too, but I couldn't seem to find it today. 

Snacks
I don't know about you, but I start feeling a little weak if I am out in the sun too long without something to eat. I always bring something to snack on with me. Today I only brought a granola bar because I wasn't going to be at the pool for very long and I had just ate lunch. But usually if I am going to be at the pool for more than an hour I will bring some crackers, peanuts, and maybe some fruit. 

Something to read/do
I get bored sometimes if I am at the pool by myself, so I always bring myself something to do or read. Most of the time it is my Kindle, but sometimes I will bring a magazine or my journal to write in. It can be a bit hard to see the screen on your laptop or Ipad. If the pool I am at has some shade I will bring my laptop and work on my blog. 

My Phone
I can not go anywhere with listening to the radio, especially to the pool. I always have Pandora blasting whether it's at the pool or the gym. Thank goodness those places have wifi or else my data usage would be out the roof! 

Towel
I didn't take a picture of my towel, but this is definitely something I always bring with me. I don't have a certain one I always bring with me. You don't want to be at the pool without one. 



What is in your Pool Bag?

Madam Glam "Like a Dream"

Hey loveys! I hope y'all had an amazing weekend. I definitely did...my husband and I have been traveling so much lately so we decided to have a lazy weekend. We stayed in pretty much the entire weekend and had a Vampire Diaries marathon. He really isn't into vampires and werewolves and such, but he watched it for me. I am a very lucky girl. :)
We started at Season One, Episode One and by Sunday night we were on Season Three, Episode Six....if that tells you how lazy we were and proves we did nothing else. haha

So if you have been following along on my blog then you would know I have been doing posts all last week about Madam Glam nail polishes. If you haven't been reading my blog then stop what you are doing right now (after you read this post of course ;) and make sure you click on my previous posts so you don't miss out on all of the gorgeous nail polishes I have been reviewing and doing swatches of. Well, unfortunely today's post is my last post of Madam Glam polishes (well, for now anyways). Maybe I saved the best for last...keep reading to find out.... :)






Facts:
Name: Like a Dream by Madam Glam
Formula: Creme
Size: 0.5 Oz
Fun Fact: 5- Free and Cruelty Free
More Information: Madam Glam





Like a Dream really is a dream to work with. I know, I have said that about every single polish I have reviewed lately from Madam Glam. But I can't help it...they are all so creamy and easy to work with. They all just glide across your nails and settle so beautifully. Like a Dream is a beautiful, bright cyan blue. It is the perfect Summer color. I have also said this before on a previous post, but this is definitely my favorite nail polish color. It puts me in such a good mood because it is such a bright, cheerful color. It took me two coats for it to be completely opaque. 
After reviewing different Madam Glam polishes and a Protein Treatment all week I can honestly say that Madam Glam is one of my favorite Nail Polish brands. It is right up there with OPI and Essie for me...and that is definitely saying a lot because I am obsessed with both of those polish brands. So make sure you check out their website to find your next nail polish.

Review: Madam Glam's Protein Treatment

Well hello there! :)
Painting my nails is definitely one of my favorite things to do, but in order for our nail polish to look good we need to take care of our nails first. I love putting oils and treatments on my nails and cuticles to keep my nails looking good and healthy. I was sent the Protein Treatment from Madam Glam. I had actually never tried a Protein Treatment on my nails before, so this was something very new to me. I was very excited to try it out and see what it did for my nails. 





Before I do my review, let's see how Madam Glam describes this Protein Treatment:

"Help your nails grow stronger and better thanks to this silk based protein reinforced formula. Bonds the nail layers together, building a strong nail foundation resistant to peeling, chipping, and splitting. 
Apply one coat 2-3 times a week or more, for faster results.
Say Goodbye to breakage!"

My thoughts:
The Protein Treatment dries to a clear gloss on your nail. It does dry very quickly. It smells like regular nail polish in the bottle, but I didn't smell anything once I applied the treatment to my nails. You can use this alone and it makes your nails look very glossy or I applied this under my nail polish as a base. My nails do feel like they are stronger since I started using this product. They do not feel brittle and just look much healthier.

Madam Glam "Boss Lady"

Okay, so I am back again with another nail polish from Madam Glam. I have to say Madam Glam is seriously one of my favorite nail polish brands now. I have not once been let down after trying several of their polishes. If you have been following my blog all week then you will know that I have been doing swatches and reviews of Madam Glam polishes all week. I was sent a few polishes to try out and I have been raving about them all week. Today's post features the perfect Fall or Winter polish and it is my favorite name for a polish....It is BOSS LADY
How awesome is that?!?!




Facts:
Name: Boss Lady by Madam Glam
Formula: Creme
Size: 0.5 Oz
Fun Fact: 5- Free and Cruelty Free
More Information: Madam Glam



I feel like they could not have chosen a better name for this creme polish. This gorgeous, deep red is EVERYTHING! I am not even lying when I say it is my favorite red polish. It is so shiny and looks like a gel polish when it dries. It took me two coats to be completely opaque. I love love love the name of it and love even more when someone would ask me the name of the polish..I could not wait to say "Boss Lady." The formula is a dream to work with...As always from a Madam Glam polish. The brush does not feel flimsy at all and is very easy to maneuver around your nail bed. 

If you haven't already make sure you look at my previous posts from this week to see my other swatches of the other Madam Glam polishes I have tried.
